Seeds were once saved by farmers and communities, revered for their offers of fertility and abundance. Today, seeds are hybridized, genetically modified, and commodified for the benefit of corporations and convenience. In the last decade, communities across the nation have been reclaiming their seed heritage by collectig and saving seeds. Organizations such as Seed Savers Exchange, Native Seed/SEARCH, and a coalition of public “Seed Libraries” have been helping communities identify and multiply seeds that are locally adapted, nutrition, resilient, and delicious!
This month, our Guest Speaker David King, founder of the Seed Library of Los Angeles, will talk all about his organizations efforts to restore Seed Sovereignity to Los Angeles and bring back local, community seed and how we all can make a difference by saving seeds in our own gardens and urban farms.
